    Sony What does Macro mode do?

    What does the macro setting on the RX100- do? (I have the M3). I checked Gary Friedmann's otherwise excellent manual I bought and it has very little on it. He does say the lens elements do not move any differently in Macro mode, so I'm wondering what use it is (??) I shoot raw BTW

    Sony Action Settings for RX100

    Thanks - I shoot in Raw so I'm not sure if most of those modes will help much. I will set iso 1600 tho and do the other 2 items as well.

    Sony View focus points in Sony's Image Data Convertor software ???

    Is there a way to have Sony's Image Data Convertor software that Sony includes with their cameras show the focus point on the image? I know the free Nikon software will do this but cannot figure out how to do it on a shot with my RX100-III. I am getting a lot of soft focus pics - the...

    Sony Newbie blown away by Portraits, but dissapointed with landscapes

    to me, the sky above the ox is too bright - I'd dial that down as per the above posts then there is composition (if you can change your position) - the guy is kind of lost in the green trees, and the slanting shadow detracts from the subject those are all just things you improve on as you take...

    Sony something I can't figure out about my new rx100 ii

    I'll bet you are in some mode where that option is not available. Not sure what mode it would be, but I've had a lot of problems of this type.

    Sony TheCameraStoreTV: RX100 III and Canon G7X...terrible Canonitis disease

    Could the slow autofocus be caused by the type of target combined with the type of AF used? IIRC, the RX100M3 uses a mixed AF detect. And handling issues are worse on a Canon than on the Sony? That's a surprise to me, I finally abandoned my much-loved Canon S-90 for the RX100M3 and while I...

    Sony Automatically show display on Rear LCD or EVF ?

    I want to have the display show in the EVF when I put my eye up there and then have the display appear on the read LCD when I am looking at that. Sony's chat support misinformed me as to how to enable this... Can anyone help? I've tried different modes (P, and i) and see different Auto...

    True, but leaving i mode gives up a number of automated functions - I am not sure what they all are though?

    Sony dynamic range

    Even my old Nikon D80 captures the light range in these scenes fine. My newer D610 easily does so. The pocket camera 100M3 does not. I tried to turn on the DRO and the camera gave me a error msg, saying I could not select that in i mode. I may try P later on, but then I lose the ability...

    Sony dynamic range

    No, I am using i mode and that will not allow DRO to be turned on. You'd think i mode would be smart enough to not blow out the highlights like that...

    Sony dynamic range

    My RX100M3 is blowing out the highlights when I take pics with both full sun and shade. Is this just a limitation of the camera or is their some setting I can change to keep those highlights? I shoot jpg + raw but am not (yet) processing the raw files. I could do that in the future as I...

    Sony RX100M3 action shots

    This delay seems to be a processing effect, not anything related to the camera shooting per se. I'll turn Auto Review off - it IS still called the same thing, and was set to 2 sec.

    Sony Comparison of RX1000 III to Canon G1X M2

    I think every other manf. will have a hard time beating Sony - they are large (so have R&D resources); they make sensors for others (like Nikon even) and they have nailed the pocket camera that is significantly better than a smartphone niche (assuming you have a big pocket). I guess the real...

    Sony RX100M3 action shots

    I see the camera takes a loooong time to finish up with a snap and then show me the real world action again in the back LCD screen - maybe due to me always shooting jpg & raw at the same time (??) It was also in i-mode, not i+ -- any ideas? I'd like to be able to take several pics with a...

    Sony D-Range Optimizer

    This sounds a lot like Nikon's HDR (I use a D610). Is it slow? Should I just leave it on all the time?

    Sony Any Downside to using i+ (Superior Auto) Mode as a default?

    yes, it's fleeting moments I want to catch by having a default mode I shoot RAW so figure I can do most things in post if I have to - I just haven't figured out i vs. i+ vs. P Sony doesn't explain what each mode really has as settings very well - apparently the camera takes a bit longer if it...

    Sony Any Downside to using i+ (Superior Auto) Mode as a default?

    Assuming I don't want to use S, A, or M except in special circumstances, is there any reason not to just use i+ (Superior Auto) all the time? e.g. skip using P or i modes? - the manual is especially unhelpful on this

    Sony New RX100 mk1 - family camera

    for fast-moving subjects I have used my Nikon D610 with the Shutter set to stay above 1/500 or 1/250, let the camera alter ISO and f-stop to suit. just got the RX100M3 so have not used it for that yet - but I'd try to replicate the above I hate to tell you tho, but the V1 is maybe the best...

    Sony RX100 Mark III Officially Announced

    My comment is premised on the tests done by dpreview. I don't think the effective aperture is always 1.8/2.8. Maybe I am not recalling which model they tested.
